Summer time mediterranean sea i crossed the mediterranean between algiers and marseille, a journey that marked the end of a reportage in algeria that had lasted several months and would culminate in a book written by yasmina khadra on this country that is so rich and appealing yet so little known. there were few passengers on board. the usual bustle on deck during this type of crossing had given way to peaceful tender scenes between lovers, friends, and a few families, along with a few solitary souls all of whom seemed caught up in the immensity of the sea and sky. a breath, an air from elsewhere... the call of a certain lightness, the slowing of a hectic pace. the call of silence making itself heard through the brouhaha of the world, providing the space for a moment of introspection. text written by rachel deghati. picture taken while on assignment for a book on the country of algeria entitled "algérie" (michel lafon publishing, 2013). #sea #mediterranean #algeria #france #boat #travel #travelphotography #blue #bluewater #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan ##عكاس #رضادقتى @thephotosociety

World refugee day #france the sos group celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary of major initiatives in tandem with a variety of associations that cure the ills of our society. my mission was to photograph the beneficiaries of these actions. i met with mansour, selina and their children, who had found asylum and a place to rebuild their lives in france. here is their story. they were forced to flee bangladesh. once they had arrived in france, they lived in a center for asylum seekers, a place where people from over twenty different countries lived together. all of them lived in the hope that the validity of their request for asylum would be recognized... “selina, my wife, worked for an ngo specializing in women’s rights, access to contraception and microcredit. her association was “disturbed” by religious extremists. they refused their access to a village and a member of the ngo was violently attacked. then i was called to the mosque where they told me that my wife and her colleagues were condemned to be s****d to death. a few days later, they burned our house down. my niece died in the fire. pressure increased and, to ensure the survival of our family, we had to leave. once we arrived in france, we were lodged in a center for asylum seekers. the office français de protection des réfugiés et apatrides helped us put a dossier together. all this takes a long time. we remained at the center for over four years. our children were enrolled in school and learned french. we became friends with people from armenia, azerbaijan, chechnya, the ivory coast, iraq... each one of them carries the suffering they endured in their country. but the conditions at the center were such that we all begin to rebuild and recover. this summer, we got our papers. what a relief! today, a new life begins for us.” published in "personne n'est au bout de son histoire - le groupe sos vu par reza" . #refugee #refugeeday #worldrefugeeday #bangladesh #refugeestories #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan ##عكاس #رضادقتى @thephotosociety

#azerbaidjan, #quba, #gyrmyzy #gasaba (« red village ») in these days of the celebration of passover (jewish passover) commemorating the exodus from egypt and the emancipation of the hebrews, i remembered this privileged moment shared between representatives of the muslim and jewish communities in azerbaijan on the occasion of the easter. the jewish people celebrate passover to commemorate the liberation of jews from slavery under the pharaohs in ancient egypt. the red village is considered the world’s only all-jewish town outside of israel and holds the greatest compact population of jews out of all post-soviet countries. #pessah #passover #jewish #muslim #share #easter #religion #tolerance #aztagram #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى عكاس @thephotosociety

-sweet street- during a 2013 american ngo assignment to angola i found this woman and a group children crossing the street in downtown kuito following an afternoon visit to the local fruit stand. entering angola as a journalist is nearly impossible so i was lucky my humanitarian visa allowed me to take a peek at the country's daily life which is still recovering from a devastating civil war that ended in 2002. after covering assignments in over 100 countries i have concluded that families are pretty much the same wherever you go.

-lanai- back in 2003 i was hired as one of the photographers taking part in the america 24/7 book project which focused a week on the lives of americans. i was working for a newspaper in honolulu at the time so i only had a day to fly to lanai and make something worthy for the book. it's a pretty place but virtually nothing happens there which is probably why the folks want to live there. after a whole day of frustration i headed back to the small airport when i spotted this lonely road along the way. i got out of the rented jeep and placed my domke camera bag on the roof and steadied a nikon camera with attached 400mm telephoto lens on it then i waited...and waited...and waited... there was no traffic for a half an hour. just as i was about to give up, this truck passed by. the picture was later published in the hawaii state book edition.

-thailand storm- back in 1991 while based in bangkok, thailand i got an assignment to cover american sailors taking r&r down in the costal beach resort of pattaya. it's a pleasant scruffy little town full of tourist and girlie bars and a good place to chill from hectic downtown bangkok. following my hotel check in i decided to sit outside and have a meal. the weather was balmy and as i gazed out at the ships offshore i noticed a storm brewing. i had a wonderful newly released contax t2 film camera with a carl zeiss lens which i started carrying on my travels. as the orange glow of the setting sun faded i positioned my camera between a plate of fried rice and some spring rolls. the table was cutting into the bottom frame of the viewfinder so i steadied the camera on top a glass of ice coffee. you never know with lightning so i just guessed the exposure.

Mayına basması sonucu, bacağını kaybeden bir babanın, aylar sonra oğluna kavuştuğu an. . . reunions since 1992, i have done several projects with unicef, assisting them in their primary mission: the defense of the rights of children. this year, we went to cambodia with serge moati and his team to create a documentary and photo reportage on the situation of children there. in the course of our wanderings, we took stock of the dire situation. antipersonnel mines continue to wreak havoc, plunging already impoverished families further into destitution. this man lost his leg when he stepped on a mine. he was recovering in a therapy center. during his long, unexplained and silent absence, which lasted several months, his wife and children had been wandering from hospitals to therapy centers in search of him. the man learned that his family had set up a makeshift camp not far from the center where he was located. after a long and moving reunion, he cradles his son who had been a mere baby when he had last seen him. as a witness to these first emotional moments, i try to remain as discreet as possible in order to avoid any mise en scène. this photograph sums up the dramatic situation of an entire country, the cause of personal suffering, and the immense tenderness this father feels for his child. life manages to assert itself, despite the worst. there are several powerful images on the contact sheets. why pick the one where you do not see the face of the father, nor that of the child? the faces would pull focus from the most important aspect of the photo – the absent leg, which is replaced by a crutch, and the presence of the child, who would seem to be the other “support” of the father. published in "war + peace" (national geographic publishing, 2007), "reza, entre guerre et paix" (national geographic publishing, 2008) and "derrière l'objectif" (hoëbeke publishing, 2010) #father #children #man #family #blackandwhitephotography #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan رضادقتى # عكاس @thephotosociety #gununkaresi #turkobjektif #fathersday #babalargünü #baba #repost @rezaphotography

-monkey bar- through the years i have covered some pretty weird newspaper assignments like this 2004 picture of a squirrel monkey quartered behind a glass window at the blue tropix bar and restaurant in honolulu, hawaii. the light was impossibly bad and in those days my nikon digital camera was barely able to record low light situations like today. to make matters worse the critters moved around too much so had to shoot two full compact flash cards to capture one relatively sharp image. it ran on the newspaper's front page the following day.

-nellis afb- one memorable experience i had 30-years ago was during a 1987 story about flying in an f-16 fighting falcon with the usaf thunderbirds. i bolted a nikon f3 camera above my instrument panel in front of me. as the pilot instructed me how to use the bright yellow ejection seat ring between my legs, i asked him for a standard military takeoff which i knew i would probably regret but hey -- it was a childhood dream. at first the takeoff was uninspiring so i leaned forward to release the camera shutter just as my body slammed into the rear seat. the acceleration felt like a 700 pound gorilla was sitting on me. as i grunted to breathe while my g-suit inflated, i was suddenly starring straight down at the ground 5000 feet below the canopy as the aircraft shot inverted at 7g's over the nevada desert. it blew my mind. the pilot must have really been grinning. he completely caught me off guard. after he turned the controls over to me, i flew the f-16 for an hour while pulling all kinds loops and rolls except for pushing the flight control stick forward. no way. the negative g's were just too extreme for my stomach. at one point the plane actually increased in speed going vertical. amazing aircraft. it was sure allot more fun than the microsoft fsx flight simulator i often play.

-top cat- some newspaper assignments are really challenging like this one taken in honolulu, hawaii a few years ago. i mean what can you do with a cat show? they are all in cages. an owner holding the winning kitty is pretty dull. it goes back to my love of a challenge. i try to find something at an event that can grab a reader into the story. pulling an emotional response from an image is a real challenge which i still struggle with. the picture was taken in very low light with film but i think the moment overcomes camera shake. the feature picture beat out news for the following days front page.

-chained up- my vacations are probably a bit different from most folks. while visiting a fellow news photographer friend in jakarta, indonesia in 2006, i asked if he could find me a good story. he knew of a place where captured h****n addicts were kept chained up. while he chatted with the head of the ward, i quickly made this image of two men who were held under an outdoor patio area. fortunately my leica m7 was so quiet that the sleeping man was not disturbed. i felt really sorry for the guys because jakarta is a steam bath. in some asian countries you can be executed for possession of very small amounts of narcotics.
